Sept 2017 Open Competition

Fun in the Canola

Taken on manual – f16   1/160 sec  ISO 320
A touch of contrast was used in post editing


This was taken on my Apple mobile phone.  I did take a photo with my camera, but the phone one was better I thought.

I am just lucky my husband lets me try different photos and will be my model with lots of persuading from me…



A drop in the mist
While at Lake Keepit, it was a really foggy morning so I took the opportunity to take some photos of the area. I initially was just taking photos of a fence line amongst other things, but when I saw this water droplet with the web beside it I thought this could be a nice shot. I didn’t know how this would turn out, but the end result I thought was nice with a faded fence line in the background and an image of the faded fence in the droplet itself also the rust detail of the wire.
Camera: Canon 40D
F-stop: F4.5
Exposure: 1/640
ISO: 200
FL: 50mm

My mountaineer
This is my first photo for the camera club competition.
This photo was taken on Mt Zugspitze in south Germany the tallest mountain in Germany rising at 2996 m. Luke was walking ahead of me and when he paused to take in the view I took the opportunity to snap this picture on my phone.
What I like about this photo is the setting of the blue sky against the white hills and it also gives you a sense of exploring a new world.

Milky Express
This was taken on a recent photo night course in Werris Creek. I love the milky way and how the train looks like its ready to go although it was past its glory days.
It was taken on my new 10-24 mm lens

Canon 70D with Canon 18-135mm lens
About to leave on a family outing when granddaughter Mabel broke into a fast-moving, impromptu & one-off modelling routine in the kitchen that was way too precious not to try & capture. Had no idea what the camera was set on when I grabbed it off the bench & I definitely had no time to fiddle as she was not prepared to pause her performance, so I just had to hope for the best. Would have loved to have had a faster shutter, but given the circumstances, I was pretty happy with the series I got
